Okay, but it sort of strikes me as an adult trying to write from the perspective of a teenager and putting in both:

a) things that are only funny to adults (because they can laugh at us from their lofty position of having gone through it already)
b) things that are just too weird (like a talking cat inheriting a house)
c) things that are just gross and put in for shock and humour value.

You could probably describe it as a satire on those teenage girl books where one thing after another happens and it all gets resolved in the end. I guess as a satire it works.
